PATAGONIC RANCH & MORENO GLACIER
The Experience: Porteños, how locals are called, love eating out. Some prefer a nice dish of pasta still life, others sit in a cosy restaurant at Palermo neighbourhood and a third devour a barbecue in a “Parrillita”. But, without a doubt, eating out is a favourite outing in Buenos Aires. For this reason, is that the culinary scene is vast and as varied as the largest metropolis in the world. A full snapshot would be overwhelming, so we chose some of the concepts and proposals that identify the city and its cuisine in which the beef and wine stands. Some other local foods and drinks are mate, alfajores, empanadas, dulce de leche, locro and “picada” (table of cold cuts and assorted cheeses accompanied by homemade bread). Come to know and experience Buenos Aires through all your senses!
